    I just recently bought this little baby from Piet. I can't wait to take it for a spin. I think I may have my final stone. From what I have been reading Thuris are really good. I am glad I found an Escher at a nice price. I have been spending my time reading up on Escher. The label is blue so I assume it is a Dark Blue Escher. The dimensions are a little small at 5"x1" but I really liked the wood box and I can get used to it. I am just glad I got it for a reasonable price.

    Any input would be nice.

    Nice stone, it does take a little getting use to use smaller hones, but in the end you just cant go wrong with an Escher!

    A very handy size if you have a slightly warped spine. Nice with radical smiling blades too. Enjoy it !

    Nice stone. I actually prefer to hone on smaller sized hones. Seems easier to me.

    It's already in the mail so I can't check but I think it's dark grey. I also don't think there's a correlation between the colour of an Escher or Thuringian and the colour of the label. Some of the little Thuringians even have pink labels

    It is a fine stone so I think you will enjoy it

    Just want to confirm what Piet already said. There is no correlation between colour of the label and colour of the stone. If Escher stated the colour on the stones they always did it with a special label at the end of the stones. You can find a lot of examples for this here at SRP. Normally there is no information about colour on the main label.

    The only Thuringian company that -according to my present knowledge- stated the coulor of the stones as a quality sign directly on the main label, was C.F. Luthardt. Here is one example for a "blue" stated quality:
